Download the latest ark release: v0.7
The ARK code is available for download from Sourceforge. It is highly recommended that you take a backup of the entire ARK directory before attempting to upgrade your system.
When the files have been downloaded, unzip the file and move all of the contents to your ARK directory. The location of directory will change depending on your setup, but for a standard ms4w is located at C:/ms4w/Apache/htdocs/ark. When copying replace all existing v0.6 files EXCEPT for the 'config' and 'data' folders! IF YOU HAVE MADE CHANGES TO THE STYLESHEET FOR YOUR ARK PROJECT, YOU WILL ALSO NOT COPY THE 'SKINS' DIRECTORY.
If successful, you should be able to log in to your ARK as before. There are a couple of minor changes that will need to be made to your settings and configuration files, we will take you through these now on a case by case basis.
Follow the detailed walkthrough
We will be updating these wiki pages shortly. In the meantime please download our upgrade document to walk you through the process of installing the new version of ARK.
